His­toric Air Scout Troop installed

Reposted from The Bar­ba­dos Advocate

The scout­ing move­ment world­wide has faced sev­eral chal­lenges in recent times, but the Chief Com­mis­sioner of the Bar­ba­dos Boy Scouts Asso­ci­a­tion, Dr. Nigel Tay­lor, says that the organ­i­sa­tion holds firm to its foun­da­tion to develop well rounded young men.

His com­ments came on Sat­ur­day evening, as his­tory was made with a new arm of the organ­i­sa­tion being wel­comed into the fold. Dr. Tay­lor made the remarks while deliv­er­ing the fea­ture address at the Investi­ture Cer­e­mony of the Deighton Grif­fith Air Scout Troop, the first Scout Troop of its kind in the Caribbean region. The cer­e­mony took place at the Bar­ba­dos Con­corde Expe­ri­ence, a fit­ting back­drop for the momen­tous occasion…

Speak­ing specif­i­cally to the boys, Dr. Tay­lor explained that the scout­ing move­ment will rede­velop their entire mind­set, help­ing them to appre­ci­ate things at a greater level, which before they might have sim­ply skimmed over. Addi­tion­ally, while remind­ing them that there are three fun­da­men­tal duties they must adhere to – duty to God, duty to coun­try and oth­ers and duty to self, he noted that the organ­i­sa­tion is one in which they will form last­ing friendships.

The boys, who were installed Sat­ur­day evening, will be intro­duced to the Chief Scout, Gov­er­nor Gen­eral Sir Elliott Bel­grave next Sun­day dur­ing the Founder’s Day Parade.
